contribution and it was a major theme of the rehnquist court. one of the major accomplishments for chief justice rehnquist was to reignite the federalism instinct and the limits on the federal government. i think it is also fair to say that many people look at their rehnquist court and its federal was some cases and felt that in the end the court was running out of steam. the court decided lopez, morrison, but then, and some might blame me, the court decided the race case, where the court said the natural prohibition on marijuana extended all the way to the possession of medical marijuana, even though california had made it legal. there was a sense that federalism was important, but losing steam. it was also important to recognize that the two appointments of president george w. bush had very different backgrounds from the justices that they replaced, and based on those backgrounds it was fair to question whether those justices would have the same in 8 dedication to federalism principles as the justices they were replacing. justice o'connor, most obviously, but chief justice rehnquist as

court all the way through chief justice rehnquist. justice white who said, "we give them limited liability. we give them perpetual life. but in return, we ask them to stay out of politics." and there's a beautiful sentence from justice white dissenting in a case called "first national bank of boston vs. bellotti," where he said, "the state need not permit its own creature to consume it." and yet, this court is saying that, "we must permit the creation of the state legislatures to consume our politics." and so to me, the citizens united case is the emblem for the whole era we're in. we're living in the "citizens united era," i think. >> but before citizens united, wealthy people were funneling money into politics, corporations were forming political action committees. and ceos of those corporations were lavishing money on selected favored political candidates. >> absolutely right, the corporate voice was never missing. and that's something, you know, justice stevens has pointed out. he said, "there were many faults to american politics. but nobody thought that a lack or a dearth o

and as recently as chief justice rehnquist and other conservative justices like justice white that a corporation is not a person armed with political rights but it is an artificial entity that's an instrumentality of the state that's used for purposes of accumulating wealth, investing wealth and it does a great job at that. but we should never allow the corporations to breach the barrier between economics and politics. but that's precisely what the 5-4 decision in citizens united did. corporations can use their treasuries as political slush funds essentially to their favorite candidates. >> jennifer: so essentially what you've said -- free speech does not depend upon the source of the speech. i can have free speech. the corporation can have free speech. can a municipality have free speech? can a church have that kind of free speech where you might see you know, a mayor directing tax dollars or a pastor directing church dollars to a candidate because they believe that it might further their interest? >> the

people looked at the rehnquist court and is federalism cases and felt that a man the corpus kind of running out of steam, but the court decided lopez, morrison, but then some may blame me they decided the race case which argued on behalf of the federal government and the court said the prohibition mayor, the national prohibition on marijuana extended all the way to the possession of medical marijuana even though california had made a pickle. so there was a sense federals were very important those kind of losing steam. it was also important to recognize that the two appointments at present george w. bush had very different backgrounds from the justices they replaced. based on those backgrounds, it was fair to question whether this justices would have the same innate dedication to federalism principles as the justices they replaced. justice o'connor most obviously, that chief justice rehnquist as well. they have substantial backgrounds practice seen in state courts are being off the state courts themselves. with respect to the chief justice and justice alito, although the wonderful

property rights treated as chief justice rehnquist famously put it like poor relations of a bill of rights. and in three main ways. first, when property is taken through the power of eminent domain it often is not for public use and rarely does the owner to receive just compensation as required by the fifth amendment of the taking of the clause. far worse when regulators took otherwise legitimate uses of property in order to protect the rights of others not to protect the rights of others but protect the public with various goods like wildlife habitat leaving the empty title with the owner really doesn't pay the owner compensation for the losses he suffers through such regulatory takings as they are called. and finally, the procedural hurdles owners have to overcome when they tried to vindicate the rights are often draconian ranging from an interminable permit delays during which time nothing can be done with the property, the so-called williamson county problems that tucker at shuffled and much more, all of which can exhaust and owner physically and financially. as the government regulato

remarkable because we have seen certainly since the rehnquist court, but if you take a broad view for out our constitutional history, there's been a long effort come a long struggle to enforce meaningful limits on the commerce clause. everyone of the justices at some level will see the commerce power is fairly broad. i also think all nine justices recognize there have to be limits on the commerce power, otherwise the whole point of enumerating the various powers of congress was entirely beside the point. they could instead the commerce power, were down. now i think some of the justices may question what role there is for the judiciary to enforce the commerce power letters. what happened in this case is that five justices did adopt what is bad at least the dominant view since the lopez decision, which is the core can simply knock it out of enforcing limits on federalism on the power of the federal government to adhere to iowa quote justice kennedy from his lopez concurrence. as he said then, the federal balance is too essential a part of archons additional structure in place to vital ebola in
